    oh wow man, goosebumps! Love Magenta live shows, and Peter Jones is awesome.
    Will definitely get these, and Rob Reed's releases are always very affordable, never gouging the fans to squeeze the most money he can get from them.

    Wonderful to see Christine back, and I forgot about the new album release, which I'll have to save up for.

    Thanks for posting this kris.

    You won't regret that purchase, as "Masters Of Illusion" is an real standout release from them. Although Christina sounds great as usual, I still would like to see them lean heavier on the instrumental passages and use her vocals more conservatively (since "Metamorphosis" the vocals dominate a bit more than I would like, my view only).

    If you donít have the Instrumental version of the album, buy it on Bandcamp! VERY well done and well worth hearing!

    Kris, I don't know to what extent if any this is possible, but is Rob Reed aware that he needs to get Spotify to clean up and/or clarify Magenta's music on their platform? All kinds of crazy stuff that is NOT Rob's Magenta is included in the band's discography there. Just thought I'd mention it. I'm sure he's more interested in people going to the Bandcamp page, but Spotify is likely to give people a very skewed idea of what Magenta sounds like!

    Also, Rob seems like a rather shy guy, but I'm sure sales would benefit from some kind of fan interaction, even if it's just to send a personal message to the mailing list now and then, or post something on Facebook. I have pretty much everything Rob's released since Cyan days, but the time I spoke to him in the dealer room at NEARfest is the ONLY time I've heard his thoughts on his own music (not counting, of course, the various Making Of videos, etc).

    Just my two cents! Watching the new 20th Anniv. DVD now!

    It is surprising how cavalier some artists are about the content appearing on streaming platforms. Transatlantic suffers from the same problem (in the US, at least.) We all hate Spotify (et. al.) but this is 2021 and these things matter.

    A couple of years ago I messaged Christina Booth and mentioned it to her (some seemingly-obscene album by a rapper named Magenta was coming up along with some of the real Magenta's albums in a discography). She was amused but surprised, and said she'd tell Rob. It doesn't seem like anything changed really, so maybe she or he didn't follow up, or maybe Spotify was unable/unwilling, didn't give a crap, etc. I get the impression Spotify is a mess that needs a lot of cleaning up, but that it will never happen. I'm sure the money flows in either way (and I'm a contributor to that). I got a lot out of Spotify over the past year especially, but lately I've been turning more and more to my CDs and Bandcamp collection.

    Oh well, as long as Magenta's Bandcamp page is in good shape, which it is, it's not such a big deal. Maybe it's better this way! The inaccurate and non-customizable searches will just nudge people looking for Magenta to Bandcamp probably.
